HMRC have released their latest 'name and shame' list of deliberate tax defaulters. The list details the name of the defaulter, the industry, amount of tax avoided, and penalties charged.

As has become the norm, the list includes a number of restaurants, take-aways, cafes, hotels, and bars, along with those in the construction industry.

There are a few electronics wholesalers and retailers cropping up, including a £954k tax bill plus £501k penalty for a computer and software wholesaler.

A football agency joins the list, with a £404k tax liability and £177k in penalties: but the largest two by far were a £6.4m tax liability with £4.5m penalties for a property development and hotel business and £5.5m tax bill and £3.5m penalty for an alcohol wholesaler.

HMRC's Current list of deliberate tax defaulters


Wouldn’t it be great and think how much TIME it would SAVE you if someone:

  • READ all the latest tax news, case decisions, new legislation and articles in tax and then summarised them for you?
  • Only alerted you to things that are RELEVANT to you?

How about if that someone also:

  • Updated those summaries in REAL TIME for you
  • ADDED examples, planning points, toolkits and calculators, and
  • Linked all that information together and also provided you with CPD?

Thousands of firms of accountants and advisers are already using as their primary TAX resource.

At a cost of just £1 per day, it’s a no brainer: FREE up your MIND and your TIME (and your wallet).

And... we run our Virtual Tax Partner support service, if you need assistance with a particular query or technical issue.
